Lemon cupcakes brushed with a tart syrup to contrast the creamy raspberry buttercream. This combination of lemon with raspberry really does remind me of a raspberry lemonade in the summer.

Chocolate Ganache With A Vegan Option
It doesn’t get much tastier than ganache. It’s creamy, chocolatey and just delicious. You can use it as a filling, to make cake pops or cover a cake and that’s just the buttercream-esque form.
